Business and Management

Our Business and Management MPhil and PhD programmes aim to develop rigorous scholars who can advance both academic knowledge and business practice. The programmes are designed to equip you with the skills necessary to succeed in a knowledge-intensive environment and to open greater depth to your professional and personal life.

Entry requirements

A 2.1 Honours degree, or international equivalent, in a relevant subject. We also usually expect a master's degree, or international equivalent, at merit or above. In addition to academic qualifications, we also value relevant work experience. If you do not have a master's degree, you should complete the MA in Management and Business Studies (Research) before continuing onto the PhD track. If you have a master's degree that is not recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) as Research Master, you will be expected to complete a Postgraduate Certificate (PGCert) in Research Methods in your first year of the programme. Applicants whose 1st language is not English will need IELTS 7.0 (with at least 6.5 in writing and speaking and 6.0 in all other sub-skills), or equivalent.
